're not going to have that doctors or medical personnel to support that. i think we need a health-care revision. there's no question about that. but we need a health care revisions that's going to allow a marketplace to compete to bring down the cost. we need to be able to buy insurance across state lines. that means states have to get out of mandates for insurance. we need tort reforms to bring down the cost and we need accessibility for insurance. we need affordability for insurance. this current law is not going to do that. it will continue to drive up health-care costs and the cost of insurance premiums. >> you have 90 seconds. >> let me tell you why -- why i have dedicated my life to the idea that everyone should have access to decent health care. there's a woman in connecticut who has worked hard all her life and so has her husband. her husband was switching jobs and in between those two jobs, during the week he was unemployed, their son was diagnosed with cancer. when it would to get insurance on her husband's new plan, they would not provide for because he had a pre-existing condition.

not necessarily keep up with health-care inflation, this would cost the average senior about $16,000 per -- $6,000 per year. year, but governor romney has said is he will maintain traditional medicare alongside it. there is still a problem. those insurance companies are clever about figuring out who are the younger and healthier seniors. they recruit them, leaving the older, sicker seniors in medicare. every health-care economist as said overtime, the traditional medicare system will collapse. you have people, like my grandmother, at the mercy of the private insurance system when they are most in need of decent health care. i do not think vouchers are the right way to go. this is not only my opinion. aarp thinks the savings we obtained from medicare bolstered the system, lengthened the medicare trust fund by eight years. benefits were not affected. if you repeal obamacare, those seniors will pay $600 more in prescriptions. there will have to pay co-pays. for basic checkups that can keep them healthier. the primary beneficiary of that repeal our insurance companies that are estimated to gain bi

, you will be on our side. if you think that doctors and patients should be making healthcare decisions rather than panels of bureaucrats in washington, you should be on our side. if you want a job, the approach i have been advocating is proven to work over 300,000, when we are working together. republicans and democrats making regulations more reasonable, taxes lower, freezing college tuition to make sure it is accessible and affordable to virginia. indeed, if you care about the future of your children or grandchildren, you should be on our side. i hope to be your voice in washington, the hard-working taxpaying families of virginia need someone on their side in washington. i hope to be there working for you and making sure that all americans, no matter their background, have that opportunity to cast their dreams. >> the economy is ready for a break. there are positive signs from last week, but i think that congress is the ankle weight right now. i think that the in it -- toge. the decision to filibuster and block a veteran jobs bill and farm bill before election day is a perfect examp

's given us healthcare reform. it gave us the failed stimulus. the only shovel ready project really funded in a large sort of way was adding additional trillion dollars debt on our middle class. it also gave us not necessarily an energy policy but an environmental policy. you don't have to look very far down the veto to see the closing plant. it will cost us 35 jobs. it's going to cost the city of billings over $10 million a year in income in the surrounding area. that's entire city of billings. that's the kind of economics we've gotten from the failed policy of president obama and from the failed policy of senator tester. >> congressman rehberg didn't answer the question why we should vote for him. the fact of the matter is, we had a broken healthcare system and making sure people with people with preexisting condition have coverage. we have to hold insurance companies accountable. as far as the stimulus package goes, the shiloh road congressman provides avenue to get to one of your developments. the fact is that the work that was done, is critically important we're going to move forward

health-care costs. when it comes to social security, you do not need a major structural change to make sure it is therefore the future. >> we will follow up on this. you have two minutes on social security and entitlements. >> our seniors depend on these programs. any time we talk about entitlements, people become concerned. neither the president nor i are proposing any changes for any current retirees or near- retirees either to social to carry or medicare. if you are 60 or older, you do not need to listen any further. for younger people we need to talk about what changes will occur. when i said the president is not proposing changes, he is for medicare. for medicare, for current retirees, he is cutting $700 -- money. everyone will get a low rate is not just going out the places where there is abuse. that is saying we are cutting the rates. hospitals and nursing homes say they will not take any medicare patients. 50% of doctors say they will not take more medicare patients. we have 4 million people on medicare advantage that will lose medicare advantage because of those $716 billion i

of healthcare reform did away with insurance company's ability to deny coverage for people with pre- existing conditions. part of the trade-off was requiring people to have coverage for individual mandates. good would you say we are keeping pre-existing conditions coverage, and if so, how would you pay for it? >> i support repealing the health care act. what i hear from the state of nebraska is they supported it as well. did we do not like the individual mandate. we do not like the government coming between a doctor and a patient. pre-existing conditions, that is important we are able to address that. what i will tell you is we will not pay for it by spilling over 7000 billion dollars from medicare. that was the trade-off on the health-care aren't now. that was the deal made. that is not sound policy. everybody knows it is not sound policy. we can look for savings with tort reform. medical procedures that are required are often unnecessary. that is one way we can look at it. >> i signed a bill, and it had no impact of all. this is a decrease in payment to insurance companies and hospitals. th
